Am I eligible for the Trulance patient assistance program?

We will review your application to determine whether you are eligible for the Trulance patient assistance program. Each program has its own eligibility criteria which is set by the pharmaceutical companies, however the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Trulance patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Trulance patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you’re taking, including Trulance. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who ship your medication.

If we determine that you may be eligible for Trulance assistance, we’ll handle the application process for you. We’ll work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you’re enrolled in the Trulance patient assistance program, and we’ll automatically request your Trulance medication refills for up to 1 year.

Is NiceRx a Trulance coupons provider?

We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access the Trulance patient assistance program. That means that we don’t offer printable Trulance manufacturer coupons, Trulance discounts, or free Trulance samples. We are not a Trulance coupon provider or Trulance discount card. Our service extends to assisting eligible individuals to access the medications they need through patient assistance programs.

Can NiceRx help me get Trulance if I have insurance?

We may be able to help you to access Trulance patient assistance in a variety of circumstances. This includes when your insurance company won’t pay for your Trulance medication or if you have a high copay or coinsurance responsibility. We may also be able to help you if you don’t have insurance. Please apply online to find out more.

How much is Trulance with insurance?

The cost of Trulance with insurance depends on the terms of your healthcare plan. To find out how much this is, your healthcare provider or pharmacist will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.

How much does Trulance cost without insurance?

Trulance prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, a pack of 30, 3 mg Trulance tablets will cost around $525.

What is Trulance?

Trulance is a prescription medicine given to adults to treat chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) and constipation caused by irritable bowel syndrome (IBS-C). Trulance is swallowed as a tablet, usually once a day, when needed. Always take your Trulance as directed by your doctor or pharmacist.

If you have constipation, either without a known cause, or caused by IBS, Trulance can help you. It softens your stools, allowing you to pass them more easily, helping you have regular, well-formed bowel movements. Trulance also reduces any pain and discomfort your constipation causes.

Trulance active ingredients

The active ingredient in Trulance is called plecanatide. When you take Trulance, it passes through your digestive system until it reaches your bowels (intestines), where it breaks down and releases plecanatide.

Plecanatide molecules attach to the surface of your bowel cells at sites called receptors. This stimulates the receptors, making them release a substance called cGMP, which causes more water to be absorbed into your bowels. This softens your stools and makes them move through your bowels faster. cGMP also reduces the activity of the nerve cells in your bowels, reducing any discomfort and pain you may feel.

Trulance side effects & Trulance drug interactions

When you take Trulance you could experience certain side effects. The most common include:

  • Diarrhea – this often begins within the first four weeks of treatment but should clear up quickly. Contact your doctor if your diarrhea lasts for more than a week
  • Flatulence (gas)
  • Feeling bloated
  • Stomach pain

Unfortunately, some people may experience more serious side effects when taking Trulance. Whilst these are rarer, they can include severe allergic reactions to the medication and/or severe diarrhea.

Trulance can interact with any other medications you’re taking to treat your constipation. It can also interact with any medications that can increase the risk of diarrhea, including laxatives, medicines for stomach ulcers, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), like ibuprofen or naproxen.

Trulance warnings & precautions

Trulance should not be given to children under six years of age. Don’t take Trulance if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient plecanatide
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Trulance (you can find these listed in the leaflet which comes with the medication)
  • Have a blockage in your stomach or bowels

Talk to your doctor before taking Trulance if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Trulance
  • Have severe or prolonged diarrhea caused by another condition
  • Have a disease of the bowels that causes inflammation, like Crohn’s disease
  • Are under the age of 18
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

*Qualifying persons may obtain medications directly from patient assistance programs without any out-of-pocket cost (or for less than $49 per medication). However, our monthly flat rate of just $49 per medication spares you the hassle of tracking down the different programs and filling out all the required paperwork for each program.

Enrollees enjoy a full-service solution, as NiceRx assists them and their physicians with the entire process. We prepare all required documents for the physician to sign, help enrollees manage all prescription refills, monitor eligibility criteria, and maintain enrollment.

**If you do not receive medications because you were determined to be ineligible for the prescription assistance by the applicable pharmaceutical companies and you have a letter of denial, we will refund any fees you paid toward medications for which you did not qualify to receive prescription assistance (“Refund”).

To receive a refund, you must send the letter of denial to us by fax to 888-517-7444, or by e-mail to [email protected] within 30 days of your receipt of such letter. The Refund is your sole and exclusive remedy for any fees you may wish to dispute.
